    DOES THE JOB 8 July 2012
    By Stoney - Published on Amazon.com
    Applied properly, lightweight spackle completely fills a hole (even large holes) with one application, requiring no sanding, and not even requiring touch-up painting if applied to a flat bright white surface.

    "Regular" spackle is likely to shrink or sag and flow, requiring several applications and sanding. Lightweight spackle does NOT shrink, sag, or flow.

    FOR BEST RESULTS
    ->Fresh lightweight spackle (from a newly opened container) works best. Opened containers dry out quickly, and even slightly dried lightweight spackle does not work nearly as well. Therefore:
    -->Use the smallest container (4oz) you can buy. If you are filling many holes, then refill the small container from a larger container.
    -->Do not leave the container uncovered. Place the lid loosely over the container while working, and open only to scrap out a little spackle at a time for immediate use. Snap the lid completely shut anytime you won't be opening it for more than 5 minutes
    -->Do NOT scrape excess from your spatula back into the container. Discard any excess or used spackle.
    -->Be sure to snap the lids completely shut before storing containers. Store opened containers in a cool location, ideally in a tightly closed plastic bag.
    -->If you haven't used a opened container for 6 months or so, it is best to buy a new one--particularly if you try to use it, and it doesn't work well.
    ->Use a flexible spatula at least twice as wide as the hole. I've found that cheap plastic spatulas (aka putty knives) work best, and it is best to have a variety of widths (1", 1 1/2", 2", 3", 5" etc). However, old thick plastic "credit cards", hotel key-cards or "membership cards" work very well. Linzer 7103S Plastic Putty Knives, 3-Inch
    ->For each hole, apply more (fresh) spackle than you think you will need. Bend the spatula to apply pressure to force the spackle into the hole, while "swiping" downward. Discard any excess. There's an art, and it takes a little practice.
    ->When filling a large hole (>2" in diameter) which goes all the way through plasterboard, it is best to attach a rigid backing in place. A piece of corrugated cardboard at least an inch larger than the hole in one dimension, is usually best, and can be glued in place with white household glue. A string loop through the cardboard and a stick to tighten the string can hold the cardboard in place until it dries. When dry, trim off the string, and fill the hole with lightweight spackle.
    ->Deep holes (e.g., around water or AC lines punched through concrete block) are often most conveniently filled with spray foam insulating material. Finish up the last inch with lightweight spackle. Dow Chemical Co. 157901 Great Stuff Insulating Foam Sealant for Gaps & Cracks The insulation also minimizes condensation around the pipe which might weaken the lightweight spackle.

    TIPS:
    ->Sometimes it is hard to perfectly fill a large hole (i.e., a hole larger than 2" in diameter. In such cases, the "least number-of-steps solution" is to slightly overfill the hole, and then sand the spackle flush when it dries. A medium-grit sanding sponge works very well for this purpose. 3M 908NA Small Area Sanding Sponge, 3.75 in x 2.625 in x 1 in, Fine/Medium. Some "sticklers" may object that sanding sponges are intended for curved surfaces etc., but in fact a sanding sponge simply works better than sanding paper on a sanding block for this application.
    ->Large (>2") shallow (<1/8") depressions are particularly difficult, but can be filled, but may require several steps: 1) apply spackle, wait for it to dry, 2) apply more to fill any gaps missed in the first application. Be sure to use a large enough spatula. Sanding the bottom surface of the depression and VERY slightly moistening the surface can make it easier.
    ->Small holes, particularly in wood (e.g., interior painted doors) are likely to have raised edges. In that case, use a rigid metal spatula (or putty knife, or wood chisel) to scrape the surface flat before applying the lightweight spackle, Red Devil 4701 1.25-Inch Stiff Metal Putty Knife or sand the surface flat.
    ->If filling a depression left by previous use of ordinary spackle, sand the surface flat before filling with lightweight spackle.
    ->As you work, alot falls on the floor. If you are doing alot of work, putting down newspaper helps---but the newspaper easily shifts. I find it most convenient to tape the newspaper to the wall (a little turned up to the wall) with blue masking tape. ScotchBlue Painter's Tape, Advanced Multi-Surface, .94-Inch by 60-Yard
    ->As already mentioned, if your surfaces are bright flat white, the hole is likely to be invisible, requiring no touch-up painting.
    ->If you have a choice between "interior" and "exterior" (or "interior/exterior") lightweight spackle---"interior" is easier to use, and should be used for all interior work.
    ->"interior" lightweight spackle can be used to fill exterior holes, if you paint over the spackle after it dries.
    ->Since I've warned you NOT to scrape excess spackle back into the container---you need some way to clean your spatula between applications. The easiest way to scrape excess spackle off a spatula is with a slightly larger spatula--another reason to have a variety of sizes. But even so, dried spackle will accumulate on the spatula, and will need to be wiped off with a damp cloth regularly. Indeed, an absolutely clean, damp, plastic spatula works best---which is particularly worth remembering for large and/or difficult holes.

    Not worth it! 17 Jan. 2009
    By K. Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
    Although this does dry fast, it shows through paint, regardless of whether you sand it or not. I used it on my bedroom without sanding (like the directions say) and the patchwork showed through the paint. I just used it this week on my living room, and sanded it, and tonight when I painted - yes it shows through here too. So I threw the product in the garbage, I'm not making that mistake again. I've used a number of other slower-drying spackling, and they don't show through like this. So take your time and buy a slower drying spackling. This just isn't worth it.

    Worst spackling ever! 14 July 2009
    By Michael Day - Published on Amazon.com
    Two weeks ago I applied DAP® Fast 'n Final® Lightweight Spackling to my ceiling to cover the bulging joints of the wallboard before I repainted it. The compound dried for a full day before I painted. Much to my surprise, when the paint over the spackling dried, it had the pattern of dried mud. I thought perhaps the compound had not dried sufficiently, and so I sanded the area to remove the pattern and waited two weeks. When I painted the compound again, the same dried mud pattern showed up. This product is garbage.

    Not too good 10 May 2013
    By Robin A. - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    I was surprised how light weight this product was. I applied over holes I had on my walls and it covered well, and it did not shrink!
    The problem was it does not dry to a very hard finish, but semi hard which I did not like. You can practically scratch it off with your nail after it dries very easily.

    Use This Whenever I Paint - Great Results Always - Use This Technique 19 May 2013
    By Lady At The Lake - Published on Amazon.com
    I've used this DAP product on sand-finish walls and on the knockdown, when necessary. I've had perfectly excellent results when doing *small* patches. No shrinkage or crumbling. Be sure to use good daylight when working.

    Our walls are knockdown textured. I had two half-moon gouges (small) in the wall near a light switch which were very noticeable. They were about the size of a man's thumbnail or so. I patched using the corner of a putty knife to apply the product carefully, then stroked the putty knife gently against the wall. Anywhere I had excess product, I wiped it away with a finger. Then I applied a little more product to finish filling to match the wall. Finally, I used my finger to gently dab over the spot, completely making it uniform with the wall. Not only did this improve the look to match wall texture, but it gave a perfectly uniform look which made the patch invisible after painting 2 coats properly and letting dry between coats.

    In fact I tried a worse product (different brand) in a tube and had horrible results - it was too sticky and always wanted to shrink and not stay in the hole.

    TIP: if you are inclined to use a good quality primer like Bullseye 123, then you will get a superior look before you paint over your spackle.

    TIP: If you are having problems getting a natural look, then make sure you use a quality paint, 2 coats over top and let dry between each coat. I have never painted a room with paint that could get by with one coat. I like the look of nice paint, try the Sherwin-Williams Cashmere "flat," it gives beautiful results with two coats; very rich looking.Don't blame DAP if you are not painting properly over it once dry.

    TIP: Also, pay attention to texture! If you have textured walls (and most of us do), and don't use a texture over it, then you might see there is a difference. Well, you need to perhaps apply a little texture to get a perfect match. Again, not the fault of the product - the products job is to fill the hole. It's up to you to match wall texture, be it sand or knockdown.

    TIP: Paint sheen: if you have a sheen to your wall paint (eggshell, satin, or semi-gloss), be aware those paint finishes show imperfections moreso. Again, any paint with sheen will tend to show imperfections, no matter what they are. It's the compromise you make when you choose sheen. Then make sure you look at texture (addressed above).

    If you are trying to fill areas that are larger, then you may need a different product altogether. For small jobs and nail holes, this stuff works fine if you pay attention to application, texture, and paint coatings.

    DAP Fast n Final is my go-to spackling compound when preparing for paint. It's all about assessing your surface and doing the steps necessary for correct application. A lot of people are in a hurry and want to take shortcuts, but the end result will not be as nice looking.
